The German pronoun "dessen" is translated by WR's dictionary as "which, that."
That's absolutely wrong. "Dessen" means "whose" or "of which" referring to a masculine or neuter possessor.

As much can be said of "deren", which applies to a feminine or plural possessor and isn't translated correctly either.
